The Barcode Room Cooler Than Cool!

I have been thinking a lot about the days when I was working at Vogue making $18,000 a year living in an NYC studio apt. I had epic parties with 60 people shoved into a little room and could care less about if they were chic or not. It was all about FUN. I love the concept of the Bar Room. It's a screening room, a bed room, an office, a kitchen, a dining room all in one. The Bar room was invented for Tokyo Designer's week 2012 by Studio 01  and sponsored by a Japanese real estate company.  Studio 01 won the Grand Prix for their Barcode Room . Check out this video and you will get it.

Julie Charbonneau Divine Design

I am desperate to see this entire bathroom. The oversized mirror with mounted vanity and the fireplace are drool worthy. 
This is Julie Charbonneau's Montreal Home featured in the February issue of House & Home. Check out the video at the bottom of this post. The raw ceiling and white painted brick mixed with epic windows are heaven. Photos by Monic Richard

Always love black walls with white chairs! NYC: Daniel Romualdez's  black Lacquered library 
A massive white painting against a wall screams chic! DR's NYC living room 
 Connecticut living room. Is it wrong how right that zebra head looks?   
Another reason to love LA: DR's LA home. Ricky Clifton furry chairs flanked by the two Richard Dupont heads makes the perfect composition.

 Bleached wood, rope rails and a green vent.  ahhhhhh

Yellow Walls and Pale Pink Flowers

I have to imagine every meal is a happy one in this room. The white table, pale pink flowers and neon yellow walls are a great mix. I would delete some pictures and straighten the walls a bit and then it would be perfect!

Room Swoon

This room is so clean light and fresh. Black walls, straw blinds, white drapes and sheets and light wood floors are a magical combination. Via Lonny

The Skinniest House in The World

Yes - This House does make you look fat. While walking in the old Jewish ghetto in Warsaw three years ago, Jakub Szczesny, a Polish architect, became fascinated by the space between two apartment buildings and got the wild idea to build a house there.  How crazy is this?

 A view of the living area with the trap door open and staircase exposed.  The coat hanger is in keeping with Mr. Szczesny’s notion of adding “dots of color” to the all-white interior.

 A view from the second floor to the living area below. The orange bean bag chair adds a pop of color and takes the place of an impossible-to-fit sofa.At a mere 35 inches wide, the living area feels more like a hallway. Visible on the floor is a trap door leading to the staircase entrance. 

Photos of Etgar Keret’s family rest atop a cantilevered desk that’s been mounted to the building’s steel structure. The yellow chair offers a visual accent to the sterile, lab-like interior, painted white to counter the effect of claustrophobia.
Etgar Keret standing on Ikea sheets in the bedroom. The Israeli writer of very short stories flew to Warsaw for the opening last week and spent a night in the house that bears his name. “The house will be a portal to all kinds of artistic initiatives,” he said. 
 The sleeping area, accessed by a ladder, contains a bed and a small work desk. The downstairs living space also holds a small desk/table.
 The house’s architect, Jakub Szczesny, belongs to a collective dedicated to experimental architecture. Building what is likely the world’s thinnest home presented “a fantastic set of impossibilities,” he said.
 Mr. Keret likens Keret House to one of his stories: compact but containing all the necessary elements. The kitchenette features a miniature sink, cooktop stove and below-counter fridge, along with storage cabinets. 
The bathroom, separated from the kitchen by a sliding door, recalls washing rooms on airplanes or in trailers. Mr. Szczesny merged the functions to save space, creating the possibility to sit on the toilet and take a shower at the same time. The floor is water resistant Corian.
